Question ID: 100379
How can one say, "Will you marry me" in the Bosnian language - only
answer if you really know the language well- a Croatian dialect, for
example, may not be entirely correct and I don't want to screw this
one up!

I am fairly sure that the phrase is the same in Bosnian as in
bog-standard Croatian. However, I appreciate you might prefer any
potential Bosnian users of GA to have first go. Let me know if you do
need an answer from me.  I am not a native speaker, but I lived in
Zagreb (Croatia) for five years and got to know the language well
enough to do translation work.

BTW, the word used is different for a man and a woman. I'm assuming
you're male.

Yes, please do give me the Croatian phrase.  She will surely
understand me even if it is slightly different.

Thanks very much.

Hello Cephalic,

The phrase you want is: Hoces li se udati za mene?  

I've written it here without the diacritical marks over the c and s,
because they will probably not come out.

To see what the real thing looks like, go to
Scroll approximately half-way down the page.  
(BTW, in the context of this web page it is a joke question asked by
the interviewer of the Croatian contestant in Eurovision 2002!)

If you need to say it, here is an approximate pronunciation:
Hochesh lee seh oodahtee zah mehneh?

And with all my heart I wish you the realisation of all your dreams,
because you certainly deserve to win on account of your courage and
initiative, and she is a very lucky lady!

Sretno! (good luck)

Search strategy: none except to look for the phrase on Google

Ooops, forgot to say that what you want to hear back from her is: da
(yes), naravno (certainly, of course)!
